The Homura SP series is handcrafted by Master Blacksmith Mr. Doi. This blade is made of Aogami number 2 (blue steel #2) with excellent sharpness and durability. This blade is double beveled with a Kengata tip.

This blade needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust easier, water should be removed immediately. It is a fascinating knife that can be used widely from home to professional.  Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged.

Gyuto Japanese kitchen knives are ideal professional long thin knives that slice, cut & chop easily through meat or vegetables to maintain the integrity of each component and freshness.

The blades use a multitude of techniques generated over the 600 year history of knife making. The Homura SP blades each hand made and meticulous attention to detail is given to all aspects of the knife, from the blade to the saya. The forging method is very similar to the Japanese sword as the blade can carry a razor sharp edge and the master blacksmith and master sharpener utilize all of their expertise to create this exquisitely hand crafted knife.
